Maximising Returns for Landlords

We know landlords need to make a good return on their investments. That’s why we champion longer term lets, which not only minimises your agency fees but also help your tenants to feel more settled and at home – emotionally investing in and caring for your property, as if it’s their own. In fact, to help tenants feel secure we have never interrupted a tenancy to charge a renewal fee.

If you would like to transfer a property over to Ethical Letting from your current agency, the process is simple. All you need to do is send an email to your current agency letting them know that we’ll be taking over, and we handle everything else. This lets you get on with what you do best, as you have no boring transfer paperwork to go through.

Should you be interesting in growing your property portfolio, or becoming a landlord for the first time, we can help. Our director Emily will be able to give you unbiased advice on your next investment decision. She has a wealth of experience in the Glasgow property market and is always looking out for lucrative investment opportunities for our landlords. This helps them to make the maximum return on their investments month after month.

Securing Reduced Rates

Whilst it is not mandatory, if your property has any energy efficient benefits we will charge you reduced rates – not just because we are in favour green initiatives but because experience has shown that cosy tenants, with low running costs, are more likely to happily rent long term.

We’ll rate your property free of charge and suggest easy ways to improve its energy efficiency. How green you choose to go is entirely up to you; from cheap and cheerful measures, like fitting draught excluders, to larger outlays, such as double glazing, we are here to help.
